Fans are urged to keep away from road cycling and triathlon sports during the Olympics.
In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, Tokyo 2020 organisers have requested the audience to stay well away from the Olympic road cycling and triathlon competitions, according to a statement released on Friday.
After a comeback of coronavirus led Japan to establish a state of the urgent situation in the town that will last throughout the Games, organisers declared that the Games would be held without attendees.
"The Tokyo Organising Committee...has decided to ask the public to refrain from spectating on roadsides during the forthcoming Olympic Cycling Road and Triathlon events...in view of the need to reduce the ongoing risk of COVID-19 infection," the statement said.
Organizers say the decision has been taken during a meeting of the Local Municipalities Working Group on Thursday. "As an additional precaution, no spectators will be admitted to Musashino No Mori Park, the starting point for Cycling Road events," the statement added.
The road cycling event is on July 24, and the triathlon is on July 26.
The people had been asked not to congregate on the sidewalks for said marathon and race walk competitions first at Sapporo Olympics.
The Games, which were deferred, will take place from July 23 to August 8, and numerous polls have regularly shown that the Japanese population is concerned about continuing with them in the pandemic.
According to a subsequent media poll, 35% wanted no spectators, 26% wanted certain restrictions, and 34% wanted the Games scrapped or extended. Spectators from other countries have been prohibited for months.
